Most 16-year-olds are mainly concerned with getting their driver's licenses and finding out where the next social event is. Not this St. Louis teen.
Darryl Currie has picked up a habit mostly reserved for old ladies -- knitting. "Every time I knit, I learn something new," Currie told local TV station KDSK. "At school, a girl asked me to knit her a scarf, and then my friend [wanted] me to make her a nose warmer, which I'm like, 'What is that?'" he said.
After perfecting his hobby, he found a way to give back to his community -- in the form of the charity Blankets for Babies. Now, he knits blankets for moms and babies in need, which are then given to Our Lady's Inn, a local emergency shelter for homeless pregnant women.
Darryl's generosity has come full circle, as Our Lady's Inn is where his mom, Fareda Lytle, stayed for a time when she was pregnant with him.
Good for you, Darryl! It's stories like this that give us hope.
